Gridworks convenes and supports stakeholders working to achieve greater benefits for West Coast consumers as the resource mix on the western grid evolves to include a higher percentage of renewable resources.

This initiative builds on the Western Public Utility Commissions’ Joint Action Framework on Climate Change, signed by the Chairs of the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), the Oregon Public Utility Commission (OPUC) and the Washington Utilities Transportation Commission (UTC), to support ongoing cooperation to reduce greenhouse gas pollution, improve reliability, and obtain cost benefits for ratepayers.

Gridworks publications contributing to the Pacific states’ resource planning is now available. Senior Fellow Mike Florio’s report, “Sharing Power Among the Pacific States“, was released January 2018. Join us February 12th for a webinar discussing the paper.
